1 Chinese character could be mapped to many pinyin, depending on its context (I.e. which phrase/word this character is part of). e.g. 樂 could be lè, yuè, yào, luò, liáo.

E.g. Try the following link and paste the text of Romans 12:12 在指望中要喜樂,在患難中要忍耐,禱告要恆切。in the first big Chinese text box, and click "Go" and watch out for the Mandarin column. You will find similar behavior for Yale/Jyutping (which are for Cantonese dialet)


On that result page, click on the big 

 on the 7th row and you will see all the possible pinyin combo for this character.

  The blind men came to Him, and Jesus said to them, "Do you believe
  that I am able to do this?" They said to him, "Yes, Lord." Then he
  touched their eyes, saying, "According to your faith be it done to
  you." And their eyes were opened. (Matt 9:28-30a)
